The beach is really nice nad wasn't too crowded and one can run along the paved work ways. I also loved the fact that they have outdoor gyms along the beach. Which makes it easy to work out while on holiday

Barra da Tijuca is not only the beach, but a new way of life in Rio de Janeiro. Many Malls, Restaurants, and all sort of amusements in the beach.
